Yesterday Paul Kuharksy announced on his blog that he is creating what he calls the NFL Twindex. His explanation:
This is our periodic look -- I’m thinking twice a month for now, weekly once we’re in a season -- at what players and others who work for NFL teams are saying via Twitter. Because I love being subjective and we all love lists, it’s a subjective list.
I actually really like this idea. I don't know how many of you follow NFL players on Twitter, but NFL players are all over the map with their "Tweets." Kuharsky has taken on the task of sorting through all of the crap that is out there to find the best to highlight on his "Twindex."
That brings up a few questions I have for you:
- Are you on Twitter?
- If you are on Twitter, what do you use it for? By that I mean do you use it to keep up with breaking news, or do you use it to keep up with what your friends are doing and to let them know what you are doing?
I was resistant to the whole Twitter movement at first because I didn't see the point of knowing what everyone is doing at every single second of the day, but I find it very useful now for getting all types of information. It is usually the place I find out about breaking sports news, and it is even the first place I saw that the Navy SEALs had taken out Osama Bin Laden.
